Jodha Akbar opened slowly at the Indian Box-office, largely due to the fact that the epic love story had a restricted release at multiplexes across the country, due to disputes between the producers of the movie and multiplex owners.
Saturday, the disputes were settled and the Hrithik Roshan – Aishwarya Rai starrer released all over. The audience response to the movie was very positive and so were the critic reviews which resulted in excellent business for the movie. According to Box Office India, the collections on Saturday were almost double compared to Friday.
The movie is expected to do business worth 16 – 17 crores during the weekend, which is great for a movie of this genre. Remember a historical has never worked in a long time. Even Aamir Khan with Mangal Pandey failed and so did Shahrukh Khan with Asoka.
Can Hrithik do what SRK and Aamir couldn’t? Lets wait and watch!
